Yesterday I roasted vegetables. Broccoli, Cauliflower, Sweet Potatoes and Beets. I wanted to have a good plan for lunches as I think about the marathon I'm scheduled to run on Sunday. The gun goes off at 7am. There are instructions to be at the starting line no later than 5:30am. Why so early? At least there will be plenty of time to find a philly cheesesteak afterward.
This week I'm not going to pay any attention to how my legs feel, or how my shoes feel a smidge to big and stiff. I'm just going to try to eat good food and go to bed early. The latter will be a cinch with Lila by Marilynne Robinson waiting for me on my nightstand.
Monday: Chickpea Saute over rice. From Plenty.
Tuesday: The Weekly Lentil. Lentil Burgers.
Wednesday: Beef Stew. Can't wait.
Thursday: Pasta and Red Sauce with Garlic Bread and Ceasar Salad. Load of Carbs.
Friday: Pizza and anything I can put my hands on. Carbo-loading continued.
I also made this salad to have on hand for lunches. She never disappoints.
